Perhaps you are already on top of your cardboard and plastic recycling, but it’s also important to keep up with your green waste and wood recycling too.
But what exactly is green waste recycling? And why is it so essential that people make the effort to do it? That’s what we’ll be addressing in this blog.
What is classified as green waste?
The key to recycling is understanding what comes under various waste categories. Green waste can be thought of as organic waste or garden waste; any biodegradable materials that grow in your garden can be classed as green waste. This includes things such as:
- Grass clippings
- Hedge trimmings
What are you supposed to do with your green and wood waste?
Sending biodegradable waste to landfill is certainly a huge missed opportunity. There are various ways to deal with green waste in a beneficial, environmentally friendly way. These usually boil down to recycling or composting.
Recycling your green waste
Local councils provide a green waste collection service throughout the UK. Your green wheelie bin is the place that garden waste needs to go. Put all grass, leaves, twigs, branches in there. into this bin and leave it to be collected by your bin collection service. As long as you’ve filled the bin with just green waste and nothing else, the materials will be taken away and then recycled.
You can also use a private green and wood waste collection service provided by a reputable waste management company. Cherry Hill Waste can pick up green and wood waste from your premises, processing and recycling it on your behalf.
Why is green and wood recycling so important?
Avoiding the use of landfills is an essential goal for anyone striving for sustainability. Green waste left to decompose in a landfill produces large quantities of methane, which is released into the atmosphere. When this waste is composted or recycled, this is prevented – making it much better for the environment.
